If I Was a Boy
Eartha Kitt Lyrics


If I was a boy I'd know the things a girl shouldn't know
I'd go where girls shouldn't go
So, oh so girls shouldn't, so

If I was a boy, I'd had come of age a long time ago
It would be a joy, if I was a boy

If I was a boy, I'd do so much a girl can't explain
I'd pack and catch me a train
Go out and raise me some Cain

If I was a boy, there'd be some use in having a brain
It would be a joy, just to be a boy

There is such a lot a girl is got to cope with
There are times I think I'm busting at the seams

But as long as I have something left to hope with
I still have my dreams

If I was a boy, I'd have no wings like girls seem to sprout
Learn things that girls seem to doubt
Spread my activities out

If I was a boy, I'd know what all the shouting's about
It would be a joy, just to be a boy

There is such a lot a girl is got to cope with
There are times I think I'm busting at the seams

But as long as I have something left to hope with
I still have my dreams

If I was a boy, I'd have no wings like girls seem to sprout
Learn things that girls seem to doubt
Spread my small activities out

If I was a boy, I'd know what all the shouting's about
It would be a joy, just to be a boy

Doggone it, if I was only a boy, the things I wouldn't do
I'd take a trip to

Sad song. Although, a sign of the times. :(

Pinky promise

This is shocking for back then. Unlike Beyoncé’s rip off, which is what music artists do, yet she may have not been the writer. At all. It’s better dang by Beyoncé though, due to the way it sounds strong. It’ld have to be this way. Not like this, unless ska
